as I like it
Yum. Since we just made yakisoba, we also had the ingredients for okonomiyaki, my favorite Japanese food. My cookbook calls it the "As You Like It Pancake", which I always find kind of funny. No maple syrup on this pancake! We didn't have any kewpie mayonnaise, so I just spread a little regular mayo and used okonomiyaki sauce, and that worked. The recipe book is a bilingual one we bought in Japan. It came in super handy in Japan when we had to ask someone in the supermarket where to find an ingredient--I could just point to the page and use my very limited Japanese to say "Where is this?"
I'm looking forward to eating more zaru soba in the coming months. I learned to love these cold noodles during the hot summer, but got out of the habit of making them. A zaru tray sure would make it fun!
